    That's definitely one game that doesn't need a character creation guide. It's really simple, you just need to read what each thing does and play around with it.
    I think they did a pretty good job with the system, even though I would have liked it if it weren't so easy to create dumpstats. But it's not a flaw, it's just a quirk of the system, I guess. It's not like there's any one stat that's universally useless (I'm looking at you Wasteland 2) and they're pretty balanced, all things considered.
    I also liked that they "detect" what kind of character you're building based on the stats you have. I don't know how they do it, yet, but I like it.

    The best gaming channel is you playing a fucking game yourself like a normal person.

    I like this guy, he does a lot of Subnautica, flight sims and other games that sort of interest me.

    I saw Grim Beard couple of years back with his Nocturne review and while he may not be everyone's cup of tea, he probably deserves about ten times more subscribers than he has.

    I remember Nocturne, they used to hype it somewhat but it never seemed to go anywhere.

    Anyone here have any tips on a channel that does ironman runs of turn-based tactics games like JA2, X-com and the likes? I welcome any tips. I have probably seen most already, but I guess I could get lucky with some small obscure channel :)
    One more criteria though, it's can't be an obnoxious radio-voice douche bag Youtuber!

    TL;DR version: Microtransactions and DLC have a shorter lead time, greater RoI and provide a steady income in between traditional development cycles. The mobile market showed early on that people will buy them en masse, so the publishers will keep using this business model. Costs have remained steady or even declined in most cases, especially due to digital distribution.

    One of the more amusing things about him is he refusal to acknowledge the thing with his eyebrows. He's answered questions about them and replied acting all puzzled.

    The Spectrum Show!


    Never owned a ZX Spectrum, but this channel is fascinating. I often put this this on in the background while working. Guy seems like he knows what he's talking about, covers everything from news to hardware and software, has a pleasant voice, and loves the fuck out of the Spectrum haha. I really like the format he has settled on from the second or so series on, with a dedicated news section, reviews of classic then new games, a hardware special, etc.

    I have a Hardcore Ironman "blind" run of Lords of Xulima. I generally LP RPGs on their hardest difficulty levels, etc.. Don't play many strategy games, though, but also have a D&D: Tactics & Temple of Elemental Evil LP somewhere on there as well. Currently doing BG:EET + SCS on Hard.

    He played XPirateZ, Final Mod pack for XCom and Terror from the Deep and finished it while he researched everything in the game, and survived.
    He got some series like X-Com Hawaii Challenge but it ended quickly...

    Yes, been watching him, but I find him too good/lucky. I'm in for the action, the losses, the drama! But he produce some nice stuff.

    Yeah, I know Meridian. Started to follow him through the OpenXcom forum. He has good content.

    I will put a recommendation myself:

    Plumps playthrough of JA2. Unfortunately he did not finish the game, but have always found this LP funny. He create these small narratives within the gameplay, bit like a story teller of some sorts. He is not the best (not bad either though) at the game so expect losses :)
